That is why taking and keeping Beacons is difficult. Timing is critical. You must send Offense to take it and reset your game remove your Offense and have Defense there as soon as possible. Many experienced leagues can capture Offense by knowing how long it takes to withdraw Offense or having already launched a raid before you got there. Game lag just makes it worse. Count this as a lesson learned. Do not leave Offense in a Beacon unless you wish to lose it.

Do not reset yur game.It wll take to long untill is loaded and is a big chance to have no offense to recal. Right after your hit succeded, go in keep/garisson, and recal your troops from there. If is a league attck,and yo have rigts to recall all off home, go in embassy/ beacon/garisson,and recal from there. Will have to chec few tmes utill the beacons apear in your embassy, it takes about 20-30 sec.

Beacons takeover are played in the keep.They are sieges.

 Simple rule. Play sieges in a keep, raids on a map. 

Settlements, beacons and castle sieges must always be played with your keep window( garrison tab) open, Always. 

These makes it even better to recall. 

Another rule, Clear your cache before doing anything dramatic,like attacking a beacon these is very important if you have low  internet speed, or have been playing a game for a while( max 2 hrs+). 

If you fail to do that, you will fail to recall your units in time, and lose em

Your sugeston is very good, but only if you lunch a single attack. If have to lunch more attacks, then is better to work on map, in case you have to cancel one or more .WIndow keep open will give you a segnificant delay in that situation.

Dear Lords

what i do is open the garrisons tab one minute before the hit. if my hit is successfully then the new sett/beacon/castle appears the first of the list just after the conquer. then only is click on recall button and select ofense and then recall. it takes very few seconds to do

hope this can help u

Don't lunch too many attacks at once, if your troops fight right after eating they'll get a cramp :P

If your garrison tab isn't to crowded that's the best place to recall troops from, especially if you're hitting somebodys beacon and they're likely to get upset about it and try to catch your offense.  The map tends to be laggy, so recalling from there is risky as you may have a 10-30 second delay if you get a lag spike and that's long enough for somebody who happened to be paying attention when your attack hit to boost in a counterattack and wipe out your army.

just another suggestion if  you are doing a league strike you can have an additional player that has the permissions to send offense home ready return troops from the beacon tab in the embassy in case the game does freeze or lag on you - I have done this a few times because someone's flash crashes and they can't withdraw their troops quickly

For big hits it should be EVERY time, And a minimum of 1 extra person, several is a good habit to get into.

Yep, just have any captains who aren't participating in the attack sitting in the embassy to send offense home.
